Netflix announced today that Stranger Things has been renewed for a fifth and final season. The news comes as the streaming giant set a premiere for the long-awaited fourth season, which will return in May after a nearly three-year absence.
The 1980s-themed horror/mystery drama burst onto the scene in 2016 and quickly gained a huge pop culture following backed by plenty of critical praise and awards. Everything from its captivating storytelling and likable characters, to its creepy atmosphere and nostalgic references, struck a chord with a wide range of viewers.
Created by the Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things takes place in Hawkins, Indiana, following a group of kids who become friends with a mysterious girl that possesses psychokinetic abilities. They discover an alternate dimension known as the Upside Down, which starts to have an increasing affect on the town and its residents.
Season 4 of Stranger Things will be split into two parts, with Volume 1 coming on May 27. Most of the forthcoming episodes will be super-sized, promising to make Season 4 twice as long as Season 3.

They should've wrapped it up with season 2. Up until then it was a truly original show, something new. Then it's turned into some sort of soap opera. Season 3 was a drag. Season 4, couldn't wait for it to be over. Season 5, I'm not even bothering.

Surprised they can afford to pay Millie Bobby Brown. I don't find her to be a particularly good actress, just adequate at best. Shes also the "it" girl of the month for Hollyweird ... totally over saturated actress. But she did a good job on this show and was a good fit. Sad to see the other kids lose a job, but it was a good run.
